Has your iPhone screen been looking a little sick lately? Software updates can be exactly the drug it needs.
Back in June, there were endless reports of iPhone Green Tint Bug. According to users who have encountered this error, the green display only appears for a few seconds when the phone is turned on or put into dark mode or night shift.

This error seems to mainly affect iPhone X and iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Max, but it also occurs on other iOS devices with iOS 13.4, 13.4.1, 13.5 or 13.5.1.
The good news is that you don’t have to send your device in for Apple repair service to solve the problem. Just install the iOS 13.6.1 update and iPhone Green Tint Bug will go away.
No one knows about iPhone Green Tint Bug
The bug may be fixed, but its cause is still a mystery. According to Apple’s iOS/iPadOS 13.6.1 patch notes, a software-based thermal management issue caused the display to temporarily discolor, but the exact mechanism for discoloring your screen (and how Apple fixes it) remains unclear.
I saw on the forum that some people speculated that this might be a hardware throttling problem, but the problem usually occurs when the screen uses less power, not more power. Therefore, it doesn’t make much sense to solve the problem by restricting the hardware.
The iOS / iPadOS 13.6.1 patch can not only alleviate the morbid screen tone. It also fixes several other iPhone / iPad errors. Even if you don’t have the green indicator problem, it’s worth installing this patch.
One of the bruised errors is a frustrating data storage error where unnecessary system files are not automatically deleted – as iOS should do when the device is running out of available space – leaving iPhone full of junk files. The patch also fixes a bug when disabling COVID19 exposure notifications.
Here’s how to update your iPhone or iPad to the latest software version go to Settings > General > Software Update.
